This chapter attempts to show how the terms ‘Hindu’ and ‘India’ are linked. Not only did they come into existence with the formation of the Government of India in 1773, but the systems that they represent were also intermingled and overlapping from the beginning. It is not surprising that ‘Hindutva’ as the ideology of a political religion ferociously opposed to monotheistic traditions, such as Christianity and Islam, later found institutional support, especially in Maharashtra and Gujarat, as also in northern India.
